Rather than limit this to b-movies, I'm just going to say movies in general. However, the criteria here are fairly specific. What I'm looking for are insane characters, male or female. Not just a little delusional, obsessive, power-mad or quirky, mind you, but insane. Full-bore barking mad.

I'm going to start the list off with one of my favourites.

11 - Frank Booth - Dennis Hopper turns in a performance that is disturbing on one level, funny as hell on another as the psychopathic, maniacal, sadistic, homicidal, obsessive, Pabst-drinking, gas-huffing villain in Lynch's Blue Velvet.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
